Towering 48 stories and offering 591 units, the modern point-tower FIVE Condos at Yonge Street and St. Joseph Street is one of the city's most talked-about condominiums. The mammoth project incorporates five brick buildings along Yonge Street that dae back to the 1870s, as well as the gothic 1905 Rawlinson Cartage warehouse on St. Joseph Street, with the aim to preserve the historic buildings while creating modern living space above. Spearheaded by several real estate firms, most notably MOD Developments Inc.

and winner of the 2011 BILD Project of the Year Award
and the Best High-Rise Design of the Year Award. Design firm ERA Architects will also build façades for 25, 17, and 15 St. Nicholas Street to match the architectural spirit of the originals.
Hariri Pontarini Architects seamlessly incorporate the four-storey façade of the historic moving company Rawlinson Cartage, along St. Joseph Street, into the building's design. The brick wall serves as the front of the condominium’s podium and and entrance. The refurbished buildings house new shops, with 14 residential units on the second and third floors.
